About Middle Rabbit Ear:

Another massive, rounded peak lying just south of the N Rabbit Ear. Its individuality is established by the Church Key, a gigantic overhanging buttress formed of a series of roofs. The unique shape of the Middle Rabbit Ear, often hidden by the North, or confounded with the Rabbit Ears Towers in front of it, or compressed by foreshortening, is best seen from the vantage point of the Rabbit Ears Plateau in the vicinity of Orp. From there you may admire, or plot routes up, its formidable W Face, unconquered as of the date of this writing. One of the great sights of the Organs is the vast vertiginous expanse of the N Face of the Middle, turned a bloody red by the descending autumn sun, as seen from the S Face of the North on the rappel down. These two great faces, so proximate, loom over the tiny strip of gully between them, looking smooth as a carpet, which mounts to the clean, definite line of the North - Middle Saddle.
